The only specific event I have set to sew for is the Battle of San Jacinto in April. I've done most of the underwear and have started on underwear for one of my daughters who wants to go to costume events with me. I need to make her a petticoat and a dress, and I need sleeve supports (or stupid puffers as [livejournal.com profile] mandie_rw calls them) and a dress for myself. I also want a bonnet for myself. I had been planning to get the Miller's Millinery 1819-1834 fashionable bonnet pattern, but I realized a couple of days ago that I bought the Butterick 3805 bonnet pattern several years ago.

The 1830's is not my forte so I thought I'd ask those who have done 1830's more than I what they think of it. Is this a reasonable bonnet shape? The goal is c. 1834-1835 and not terribly fashionable but not drab and poverty-stricken. I can't find any pictures of any bonnets made from this pattern - only reviews of two other views on patternreview.com and a comment on reddawn.net that the bonnet view is probably the best of the views. That's not much.

Any thoughts?
